NIGHT OF WORSHIP

We are planning a community wide “Night of worship” here on Friday evening, April 12, beginning at 6:30pm. We trust that this will bring followers of Christ closer together, as well as praying for a fresh encounter with God. I hope you plan to attend.

SATURATE USA

We had a great start to this community outreach process. We had 32 youth/adults here. God allowed us to stuff over 4,000 bags. We have many more that can be filled.  I really believe that God is allowing us this wonderful opportunity to really go after it in Lewisburg and beyond. We will be distributing these bags on Sunday afternoon, March 31, beginning at 3:30pm. We have three areas that we will cover on that day. Pray that God will use these to impact our community. Plan to be part of the community outreach.  If you would like to take some bags and canvass your neighborhood or subdivision, just let us know. We can provide them for you.

CHILDREN’S BIBLE DRILL

This Sunday night at 5pm we will have the church wide Bible Drill. This will take the major portion of our worship service. I urge you to attend to watch and to encourage our children who are preparing for the Associational Drill at Hernando Baptist Church on Sunday, March 31 at 2pm.

SENDING HOPE

That is the theme of the “Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions. The goal is $70 million. Every dime of this offering goes right to ministry. We will receive this offering through March 31. We have offering envelopes and prayer guide available. For those who wish to do so, you can also us “PushPay” for this special offering. Please pray about what God would have you to give as well as for this offering.

NEW MEMBER/GUEST INFORMATION LUNCH

If you are a new member or a frequent guest, please sign up for this lunch. It will take place on Sunday, March 24, immediately following the morning service. Please also include the number attending for our purpose in planning. You’ll be able to learn about our core values, meet the staff, and ask questions that you may have. Hope to see you

there.

REVIVAL IS LIKE JUDGMENT DAY

This past Sunday evening we watched a message by the late Dr. J. Edwin Orr entitled “Revival is Like Judgment Day.” For those of you who missed it, you can access it on YouTube. I urge you to watch it. It was his last message on this earth. He passed away the next morning.

This past weekend Deb and I participated in the “Love and Respect” seminar. It was a real blessing to us. Although married close to 40 years, we learned a lot. Some of our responses to what we learned were “Amen.” At other times, they were “Oh me.” Marriage is like the Christian life. It can and will have ebbs and flows. That’s true of individuals and churches. Our church (and many others) is in need of revival. This is a process, not an event or a series of meetings. As we get closer to Resurrection Sunday, I want us to spend some time looking inwardly. Please pray for me as I begin a series on Revival this coming Sunday. Pray that God would move in our midst. Pray that we would become more God-centered in our vision and in our practices. I am praying that very thing for me.

On a final note, pray for those of our number who are out of during spring break. God bless each of you. I love y’all.
